37. Madrone before the Storm

Madrone before the storm, watercolors, 2011

I have been experimenting a lot with layering watercolors, sometime with the eye to use the watercolor layer as a base onto which I would apply pastels.  I had traveled recently from Seattle to Portland on Amtrak, and did this piece.  I was trying to capture the layers of limbs & leaves, and how light filters through denser & lighter sections of trees.  I also wanted to capture the motion of trees swaying in the wind.
